DMV rapper .idk. (Ignorantly Delivering Knowledge) has been on a hot streak since his standout year in 2017. His 2018 single "No Wave” featuring tour mate Denzel Curry produced a catchy, bass-heavy track that lead to over three million Spotify plays. A more recent drop however, was IDK's braggadocios "Lil Arrogant" with Joey Bada$$ and Russ which immediately landed in the Top 10 on SoundCloud and continues to rise.
After releasing the critically-acclaimed album IWASVERYBAD in partnership with Adult Swim, embarking on a sold-out European tour with Joey Bada$$, and an explosive performance at the inaugural Rolling Loud SoCal festival in December, he was rightfully named one of the Best New Artists of 2017 by Pigeons and Planes.
IWASVERYBAD is a vivid autobiography of the 25-year-old's life: it explores the narrative of IDK's adolescence - a journey of loss, redemption and eventual triumph - retelling the moments that led to his teenage incarceration and confronting the loss of his mother. Featuring guest appearances from Chief Keef, Swizz Beatz, DOOM, Del The Funky Homosapien, Yung Gleesh, Mother Marygold and more, IWASVERYBAD earned a spot on several major publication’s "Best of 2017" lists including Vulture's Best Albums of 2017 So Far, Genius' 50 Best Albums of 2017, Noisey's 36 Best Overlooked Albums of 2017, and DJ Booth's 50 Best Hip-Hop and R&B Albums of 2017.
Most recently, the young rapper released new single “Star” and embarked on the “Mad Man Tour” with A$AP Ferg and Denzel Curry, performing in cities across the United States.
